Should the films expand more on Magneto's powers?

I think there is a reason why they made Magneto not as powerful as he is in the comics. If Magneto were as powerful, then he would be unbeatable, and that wouldn't help the plot of the film.  Furthermore, the powers that Magneto has had in the films appear more "realistic" compared to his other powers in the comics, and these powers probably would cost a lot of money for them.

Probably the script writer and director themselves didn't understand that much about his feats.

True. If they stayed true with Magneto of the comics they should've also used a body builder for the actor and not Sir Ian... Nyehehehe!
